A passenger says there wasn't much commotion after a man allegedly urinated on fellow travelers during a flight from Anchorage to Portland, Oregon.

KOIN-TV in Portland reports 27-year-old Jeff Rubin was arrested after JetBlue Flight 47 landed early Friday. He's accused of waking up and urinating in the crack between the seats in front of him.

Suzanna Caldwell is a reporter for the Alaska Dispatch News and was seated two rows in front of Rubin. She tells the Anchorage newspaper no one was screaming. In fact, she didn't realize anything had happened until flight attendants said police would meet the plane.

She says officers had to wake up Rubin again after he apparently fell back asleep.

The Anchorage reporter also says an officer then asked passengers, "Who got peed on?"
